Undiscussed Horrific Abuse, One Victim of Many gmkarl at

I was thinking today of how exploitation is profitable.

When you have an exponential source of income, it seems to your
benefit to design the income to be as early and large as possible.
Then you have more capital to build future endeavors with.

Assuming you keep doing businesses, it makes for a heftier integration
of profit over time.

I imagine e.g. oil corporations planning to pull as much oil out of
the planet as they can, as fast as they can; then using the time it
actually takes to do that, to figure out and land groundwork for how
to capitalize off of everybody's urges once resources are depleted.

Dunno if that's how how it actually plays out.
